Neil Young Releases ‘A Letter Home’ Album on Record Store Day

Neil Young

Here’s one surprise Record Store Day release you can buy without leaving your home or hitting up eBay: A Letter Home (available now through Third Man), the “retro-tech” solo album from Neil Young, featuring straight-to-vinyl acoustic covers of Bob Dylan, Bert Jansch, Willie Nelson and more.

In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this week, Young said the effort was tracked in a 1947 Voice-O-Graph booth owned by co-producer Jack White. “It’s an amazing time capsule,” he explained. “From nothing, to nowhere… It’s a good piece, a real nice piece. I look forward to people getting it, especially in light of what I’m doing now. It’s coming out pretty soon.”
